    About this property

    • October Lodge is an immaculately-presented home, tucked away within a generous and well-screened corner plot offering a high level of privacy.

      For those looking for a rural life-style, yet need ease of access for practical family life, Sheepstreet Lane is the perfect spot, lying between the delightful village of Ticehurst, with its excellent amenities and Etchingham, with its mainline station and just 13 miles from Tunbridge Wells.

      Built in the 1980s, the property has undergone extensive refurbishment to create a comfortable and stylish country home, with a crisp contemporary finish, big picture windows and glazed doors to enhance the natural light and enable a lovely outlook to all sides.

      The large dual aspect open plan living space comprises a well-fitted kitchen with stone flooring with under floor heating, a good range of wall and base units, a large island breakfast bar, corian work tops, twin electric ovens, induction hob and integrated fridge/freezer.

      There is ample space here for dining, and bi-fold doors open out to the garden creating extra scope for summer entertaining. The informal sitting area to the front enjoys an attractive outlook through tall windows.

      The separate well-proportioned sitting room has roof skylights, is fitted with a wood burning stove and also opens out to the garden.

      The boot room and utility room are country-living essentials, providing useful domestic space for washing and drying, with a side entrance, and linking through to an integral double garage.

      There are four bedrooms, three to the rear and one to the front, all with a lovely outlook, together with two well appointed bath/shower rooms.

      The property is accessed via a track and is set well back from Sheepstreet Lane, with a large woodland garden to the front featuring several mature oaks providing an attractive outlook.

      The gently sloping garden to the rear has a wide terrace, herbaceous borders and with an outlook to mature woodland beyond the far boundary.

      The pretty kitchen garden to the side has several raised beds, a greenhouse and is sheltered behind a wall with a gated entrance supporting a productive red grape vine.

    This is one of my favourite country lanes - on high ground, on a ridge, with a lovely outlook to both sides and relatively quiet. Located between two good villages - great shopping in Ticehurst and trains to London from Etchingham.
